One of the most common problems is a vehicle safety system that does not work properly. The “safety” light on the instrument panel flashes to let you know that the system is activated. Fortunately, you can reset the security system. If the vehicle does not start after performing the reset procedure, the vehicle must be repaired by a mechanic as soon as possible.
- Put the key in the ignition and start the vehicle as normal. If the engine does not start, or start and die, the safety light should flash. If so, you have identified the security system as the problem.
- Wait 10 minutes with the ignition set to the “On” position. After 10 minutes, the “safety” light should go out or simply light without blinking.
- Turn the ignition to the “Off” position after the “safety” light stops blinking or shuts down completely. Wait 20 seconds and start the engine again. If the engine starts correctly, you have solved the security problem. If not, you must restart the security system procedure.
- The process requires you to repeat these steps three more times. After repeating the steps of this procedure three times, the system restarts.
